Changing Directions at BP Milwaukee

Today marks a different direction for BP Milwaukee. I am stepping down as Editor-in-Chief in an effort to re-charge my writing batteries, while Nicholas Zettel (formerly of Disciples of Uecker) will take the reins. I would be doing a disservice to the great writers at BPM and readers, like yourselves, by not giving 100 percent […]


Pulling Apart the Segura Trade

Last week, the Milwaukee Brewers traded shortstop Jean Segura and right-hander Tyler Wagner to the Arizona Diamondbacks in return for right-hander Chase Anderson, infielder Aaron Hill and infield prospect Isan Diaz. The trade has largely been painted as a significant win for the Brewers. Some have considered the deal a pure salary dump, as the […]


Odds & Ends: Trading Khris Davis & Lucroy’s Trade Comments

RECENT SIGNINGS OPEN UP MARKET FOR KHRIS DAVIS? With Yoenis Cespedes re-signing in New York and Justin Upton inking a long-term deal with Detroit, the stagnating outfield market seems to finally have jumped to life. Dexter Fowler and Austin Jackson still have to find homes. As the latter two are primarily center fielders, though, it’s […]


Why We’re Wrong To Criticize Lucroy For Wanting Trade

After a relatively toothless December in Wisconsin, the winter weather has finally blanketed the Midwest in January, bringing below-zero temperatures and a handful of flurries. The winter meetings ended over a month ago. The Green Bay Packers departed the NFL Playoffs in a simultaneously exhilarating and soul-crushing manner. The Milwaukee Brewers haven’t made a transaction […]


How Brewers Should Rebuild: Spend Lots Of Money

According to Cot’s Contracts, the Milwaukee Brewers currently have $40.5 million committed to their Major League roster, not including the three pending arbitration cases for Jean Segura, Wily Peralta, and Will Smith. Everyone else who dons a Brewers uniform in 2016, as of now, will make the league minimum. For perspective, the club’s Opening Day payroll […]

Chris Carter

Brewers Sign Chris Carter, Continue Upgrade In Key Area

David Stearns and the Milwaukee Brewers had been unnaturally vocal about their desire to sign a free-agent first baseman this winter. Media reports repeatedly connected Pedro Alvarez to the Brewers, to the point that it seemed inevitable. Of course, Alvarez made a lot of sense for the club, but Stearns changed speeds yet again this winter. […]

Top Brewers Storylines of 2015: Jonathan Lucroy Struggles

At BP Milwaukee this week, we’ve been looking back at the biggest Brewers storylines of the 2015 season. Trades and front-office shakeups obviously command most of our attention; however, this past year saw Jonathan Lucroy follow up his borderline MVP performance (+7.9 WARP) in 2014 with his worst overall production (+1.4 WARP) since his rookie campaign. Injuries […]


Finding the Next Marco Estrada in Zach Davies

Marco Estrada proved to be a divisive figure amongst fans while on the Milwaukee Brewers. He posted quality numbers in 2012 and 2013 before getting shouted out of town following his disappointing 2014 campaign. His underlying strikeout-to-walk ratios and swing-and-miss rates always endeared himself to some, while others couldn’t stomach his penchant for the long ball, as […]
